Skyespeak

Skye needs a good dose of the English language. She actually said to me, the other day, "Mummy! Lydia did got the same as what I did has..."

.

Here she is now...Skye, come and tell me a story.

"I only know one story Mummy,
ok, one day there was a mermaid sitting on a rock and she did go in the water... and her name was Silky and she have... Silky was her name and then she did go under the water and she did sees another mermaid and she goes with another mermaid and then she said that the other mermaid said that what was going to be her party... not the other mermaids party... the other one the name what is Silky and then she saw a party and it was her party and then she had a pink cake and she did like it....
Mummy, I want to eat something, I want a ham and I want a cheese and sandwich I want....oooh, look a photo of that lompster what I didn't like
!"

Sometimes I just have to tell her to shut up for a bit. She makes my head spin trying to make sense of what she says.

"Z for zoozebra, pasta with apricorns, I fought I did got a hurt, maybe somewhere.."

Please tell me if I start writing like what she does talk like...

  4. I tutor English to a little Italian girl (10 years old so a bit older than Poppy) who lived in the US for a year when she was 6. She speaks English a bit like Poppy ie. her tenses are all a bit off and she uses Italian syntax. Solution - apart from my wonderful tutoring :)- was that her parents promised to get her Disney Channel only if she watched it entirely in English.

    I'm not advocating commercialistic children's TV but maybe there is some kind of similar solution for giving Poppy a daily dose of English?

  7. I speak Italian like Poppy, everything in the wrong order with some italian/english words thrown in, not making any sense.

    My son's first & only language is English & at almost 14 he has reduced it to grunts :)

  8. I think it's cute Poppyspeak!
    She's just little. I'd be trying not to laugh.
    I sometimes am told I don't speak good CANADA, hee hee and I was born in Canada. Tempo, time is all she needs.

  9. I'm a teacher and I just finished laughing my arse off at the hilarity that is Poppy Speak. What really made me hoot and holler is you telling her to shut up for a minute. Your wit knows no bounds.
